Waffles in Tahoe
Ah, the outdoors of Lake Tahoe! I had a really fun time, although I didn't quite get enough pictures as I would have liked. But they will have to do.
About this creation


Okay, well, the first part of the vacation was, *shivers*, getting there. That was probably the longest car ride in my life. I mean it when I say that. There was hardly anything I could do either, just listen to an audio tape of a book I had already read a while ago. We left at 8:30 in the morning.



So, me and my siggy got bored. We started yelling at each other for absolutely no apparent reason. Then I just picked him up and placed him the ceiling fan. He definitely shut up then.



Finally, after about 9 HOURS of travel, we made it. We arrived when there was still daylight, of course, but we stopped to eat dinner at KFC and walked around a Father's day car show. So when we made it to the cabin it was a little dark. But, we found that the place had an air hockey table. My sigfig obviously lost to my little brother, but, he tried his best. At least he wasn't injured by a flying puck.



Ah, when I woke up in the morning, I was fully rested. After I ate a nice breakfast of pancakes that we had picked up last night at the neighboring Raley's, I went out on the deck. My sigfig found it quite nice, and the view was awesome. We then went hiking around the surrounding wilderness.



My sigfig standing on a log. This was at a place where there was a viewing station to see rainbow trout and other fish.



My sigfig still wants to sue me for this. He can't see the difference between a shark and a trout.



This shot gave my sigfig the most odd sense of Deja vu.



My sigfig was really nervous about this shot, since he thought this hollowed out tree trunk was a troll's house. I told him sarcastically that only waffle zombies resided here, and that they were out for the moment. Of course, my sigfig fainted.



And yes, what kind of trip would be complete without those pesky large ants? I took a lego ant along just to show them who's boss.



Tree climbing is also an effective way to hide from ants too. Unless, there are ants in the tree already, as my sigfig found out later.



Indoor rock climbing. Well, it was part of the fireplace in our cabin, but hey, you take what you get.



Okay, how did he get inside a hornet's nest?



Oh, hi. I will call him scruffy. I wonder what he will look like when he grows up?



*five months later*
Nn-nnic-ce Sssc rr uffy! Gg oood-d bbooy. *scruffy growls* Ahhhhhh! *ferocious munching sounds*



Phew! At least I can escape carnivorous caterpillars in my boat. Oh wait, what is that butterfly doing with red eyes? Oh god help me...

Additional Photos



The cabin I stayed in. A really nice one too.



A shot of the lake with a seagull and boats.



The mountains were still covered with snow too. It was really beautiful.



Fourth wall rambles:
That was really a fun trip. I could have added more photos, but that would have taken a while. If you want see some more pics, then you can look at this.

I'd ask if you bite your nails, but that sounds vaguely familiar... It looks like you had a wonderful trip, and that's always good. Oh, you got a Flickr page? I did too! I'll add you as a contact.

Quoting Cody G Nice, I just got back from a four hour drive, a nine hour drive sounds awful.
Trust me, it is. It was much better going back though.
